After coming home from a 10 hours day at work where I have sat on my butt all day at a computer Im brain dead...the last thing I want to do is get on the tready!! but I know I have to - I wanna be around for a few more years yet!!
I think this site will help me stay motivated.....

hi hi annie :) how are you? a big welcome from all of us :)

I am 22 and also work a 9hr day so from 6am-6pm i am busy hehe

sometimes i struggle to get on the treddy too, but lately i have found that listening to my ipod, to songs with a good beat, has really motivated me. The time seems to fly by when i am walking to the beat of some upbeat songs :) also i vision myself the size i want to be and how i want to look and knowing that with every step i am making my way closer to that, it makes me happy and i put more effort into it :)

I started on here last week myself, and after reading heaps of posts and changing the way i eat and exercise, i have already lost 2.3kgs :) which has me over the moon.

This forum is great for when you are starting out on the weightloss journey :) i love it.

Good on ya for coming on here and telling us where u are at :) its great to know, and i can see how you really want this too, to lose weight :) thats the first step really isnt it, to really want it and work towards beginning the whole process :)

if you ever need someone to chat to, or to complain to :p i am here :)

once again welcome, and i know you shall reach your goal :p take care specially with your blood pressure :)



[First goal: to reach 80kgs]
[Second goal: to reach 75kgs]
